Acne is a chronic disease of sebaceous glands. It usually begins at the age of several years, but the first symptoms may occur after the age of 20 (adult acne). The lesions are located on the face, sometimes also on the upper part of the chest. These can be blackheads, papules, pimples or deep purulent cysts. In most cases, acne is not associated with any other diseases or disorders (e.g. endocrine) and additional tests are not needed. Treatment usually lasts no less than a few months.
The decision regarding treatment depends on the current course of the disease and type and the severity of the lesions.
The most common treatments are: external medicines (gels, creams, ointments), antibiotics or retinoids (derivatives of vitamin A). All doctors in our office have the knowledge and experience necessary for the proper selection of medicines and treatment.
